Dear Ali, Thank you for your inquiry. You can take a bus to Dongying from Jinan. The bus departs every 1 hour from the Jinan Long Distance Bus Terminal Station (济南长途汽车总站). It takes about 3 hours driving fro Jinan to Dongying, and the price is about CNY60. Doris Huang replied on 2014-04-11

Hi I want to go from zibo to Guangdong in South China . Kindly advise how to reach by fastest mode of transport. Which is the nearest airport from zibo from where I can take a flight.
Dear Dinesh Gaind, You could take high speed train from Zibo to Guangzhou directly, it takes about 10.5-11 hours. There is no airport in Zibo. If you would like to take a flight, you need to go to Jinan firstly ( around 1 hour by train), then take a flight to Guangzhou(about 2.5 hours). You could book the ticket on our website.
